Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by anything left!! Always good
After many nights at Pride Park, we have never yet been disappointed. The staff are so nice and helpful. The breakfast is simple, but great value considering the cost of the room. The bar is a decent area and comfortable for a drink when we return at night.
As usual, my only problem is an uncomfortably hard
bed and stiff pillows. I now take my own quilt so as I can sleep on top of the provided one, so it isn't an issue. Thick toppers and fluffy pillows would make it all perfect, maybe just a few rooms with the option of soft. But as I realise, it is very good value and these things cost.
We will be back within a couple of months as we visit elderly relatives.
All in all my thanks as ever go to the staff.

We were looking for a value weekend break...the Holiday Inn at Derby was fantastic. All facilities you could need...very clean and well kept. Great choice of self serve breakfast. Staff were very polite and helpful. We missed breakfast on the last day and a member of staff brought us some muffins from the kitchen. Excellent value for money! Just 5 mins from city centre shopping and only about 1/2 hour drive from Matlock Bath. Would definitely stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mr Business Man My stay
Room was clean and functional, although a little bare and dated, Bathroom small and very compact, although functional for my requirements.
On the negative side, the bed was not very comfortable and my room was at the front of the hotel above the smoking area, so that tended to mean it was noisy if I had the window open for some air.
On the positive side, the staff were really friendly and more than helpful when I left my room key in the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul1231 Good Night
Other then the fact there was some rubbish left in the toilet it was a good experience. Stayed here last year and decided to stay again as for the money there's nothing better. Very friendly staff and very flexible weekend breakfast times on a weekend as well as a good variety of foods.
Room is simple but perfect for a night or twos stay, comfortable beds and decent sized television with Freeview.

Bed was not very comfortable but this is different for everyone. The family room was good value for money as this was just a base for while we were out and about for the majority of the time. There was a good selection of restaurants close to the hotel which provided a variety to suit the whole family.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mandyjane Very enjoyable stay
The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The seating, bar and breakfast area very relaxing, clean and comfortable. Really lovely breakfast, though it says 'continental breakfast' there was a good choice of sausage, eggs, beans, toast, croissants, cereals, fruit, juice

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cowesby All in all a pretty good place to stay
.Good standard hotel with most things spot on. If booking and a light sleeper, as I am, ask for a room at the other side of the hotel to the car park.

I've stayed at a few Holiday Inn Expresses and they are reliable and consistent in their quality and comfort.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Purple Cobwebs Couldn't ask for more helpful staff
Yet again we returned to Pride Park for our annual pilgimage to the heart of rock and metal - Download festival.
The prices were high this year, with only ther festival package being available. Gone are the days of £50 rooms when the festival is on!
However, the hotel is convenient, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. One of the girls on reception even posted our Fathers Day cards out for us when we couldn't find a post box.
The complementary breakfast is very welcome each morning, but please bring back the marmite!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Norma92a A GOOD CHOICE
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights.
The breakfast was excellent with plenty of variety. We were leaving the hotel at 06.30am (before the official 'start' time of the breakfast hours) and were still able to get plenty to eat.
The only slight negative for all of our party (4 adults and 1 child) was the beds - we all found them to be too soft. Our room also did not have an extractor fan in the bathroom which meant a rather steamy experience.
All together a good budget choice.

We stayed at the Derby-Pride Park hotel as part of our weekend trip to Donnington Park racetrack for the world superbike championship. It was very easy to find and my family and I had a nice relaxed stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie54 Fine, but needs a make over
All was as expected but the room needed a new carpet and an upgrade of decoration and furniture.
There is a swish of traffic from early to late.
Good staff and adequate breakfast.

Sin incidencias. Habitación cómoda, el único aspecto a reseñar es el tiempo que se pierde esperando a que se abra la barrera para entrar y salir.

The Holiday Inn Express in Pride Park Derby is a comfortable hotel, providing sufficient amenities for the business traveler. The staff are always friendly and efficient and go out of their way to be helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SIR BUCKY Average not worth the cost
Whilst I had no problems with this hotel, i would not pay such a high cost again for an average level of service. In other words the cost of a night at this hotel is too high based on the average service. Breakfast was okay as this is an express hotel.. The room was nice however there were around 3 occassional noises of doors slamming or sqealing in the early morning between 1:00am to 4 am that kept waking me up.So i would not go as far as saying not recommended, but would suggest this will not be the top of my list when in that area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsSmith93 Excellent as ever
We have used Holiday Inn Express in different towns, this was our first time in Derby, and as expected we had a very comfortable stay. Room was kept very clean, staff were helpful and a plentiful breakfast was had each day. It was very convenient for the purpose of our stay (World Superbikes at nearby Donington) and we also received excellent service at both nearby restaurants, Harvester and Chiquito's (Chiquito's was rather expensive though). Will definitely be staying again. The only bad thing I can say is that the man in the next room had an extremely loud voice that we could hear above our television, and didn't stop talking all of Saturday evening, but that of course was not the fault of the hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by anything left!! Great staff
There is always a consistency of quality and great service from the staff.
Booking however through IHG site was appalling and let down the service. I was given all incorrect advice on points I would receive. I got some extra added as I had it all in writing from them what I would get, but still had to argue for them. Not a small discrepancy but over 10,000 points missing. I am still approximately 5,000 short.
This will not stop us using the hotel though as it was none of their fault, and the staff there really go out of their way to be helpful. Get those mattress toppers and it really will be perfect for purpose.
Thanks to the staff at Pride Park Derby!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tespmi Ideal location
Getting the real downside out of the way first - the shower units need a non-slip surface and bacon for breakfast would be a bonus.
This was our 3rd Holiday Inn Hotel in a 2 week business trip and provided us with a relaxing base. Reception staff were friendly and informative. The room was clean an adequate size and comfortable (apart from the shower). The breakfast was good but could have been better and the public areas were welcoming. The Laundry service was very efficient. The in room wifi was excellent. The car parking area was very good as the spaces seemed just a little bigger than the norm so meant you were in less danger of being knocked by other cars.On the whole a good stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mo and po almost great
We enjoyed the hotel except for the fact that the water temperature would go from hot to cold without warning and the shower drain was very slow. We told them about it and they said they would look into it. A little better the next morning but not totally fixed. If you turned on the hot water at the sink it would decrease to a trickle on its own.
